Cranberry Township says water is safe following train derailment

Cranberry Township posted a notice Tuesday assuring residents that their water is safe to use following a train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, on Feb. 3.

According to the notice, Cranberry Township and its water provider, West View Water Authority, are closely monitoring the situation and “will take any necessary steps to ensure the safety of the township’s water.”

The township’s supply comes from the Ohio River upstream from the derailment, which was about 33 miles away. To prevent an explosion, hazardous chemicals aboard a train car were burned. The situation has prompted concern about air and water quality.
